Our Experience

Our founders have spent 15 years running a successful industry-independent procurement consulting business.
With a proven track record, our combined experience adds up to over 100 consulting years, spent acquiring industry-specific knowledge and expertise in 15 European Countries. Now, we will apply these skills to the task of bringing about meaningful change in the procurement and distribution of medical devices.
  • We currently work in 15 European countries, for clients including 6 private equity investors
  • 100 combined years of consulting experience, and approx. 200 procurement projects undertaken in the last 15 years
  • Track record: > 20-60% permanent savings p.a.
  • Successful projects (highlights from the past 3 years):
  • 140 rehab, acute, and care locations - 40m € purchasing volume p.a.
  • 200 Pan-European private acute and outpatient locations - 120m € purchasing volume p.a
  • 40 acute clinics, 8000 beds – 120m € purchasing volume p.a.
  • 27 acute hospitals, 8000 beds - 300m € purchasing volume p.a (selected product groups)
  • 7 specialized acute hospitals, 20m € purchasing volume p.a
  • Lab Service Provider – 40 countries, 4 continents, 400m € purchasing volume p.a
  • > 20 Hospital & Healthcare Facilities, > 50m € purchasing volume
Our new business model is the next logical development step. Instead of standardizing and bundling medical devices to increase purchasing power for individual European Hospital Groups via traditional paper-based contracts, procurement can be done on a European scale by deploying our platform technology. This means that every participating European Hospital stands to make financial savings thanks to increased purchasing power, guided by the internet platform economy approach and rules.
